Denver Eagle P3 Project, US
The Denver Transit Partners (DTP) consortium has begun construction on the Denver Eagle P3 Project in the United States. John Laing has a 45% interest in DTP, alongside Aberdeen Infrastructure Investments, which also has a 45% interest. The balance is held by Fluor.
The contract to design, build, finance, maintain and operate two new commuter rail lines and a portion of a third in the Denver Metropolitan area, was signed by the Denver Transit Partners (DTP) consortium and client, Regional Transportation District in August 2010.
The project involves the design, build, finance, maintenance and operation of two new commuter rail lines and a portion of a third in the Denver Metropolitan area. The East Corridor runs from Denver International Airport to Denver Union Station, a distance of 23 miles. The Gold Line runs from the western suburbs to Denver Union Station, a distance of 11 miles. A starter segment of the Northwest Rail corridor concurrent with the Gold Line will run separately for an additional two miles. The scope of the project is to deliver and operate the entire rail system, from civil works and structures right through to the electric rail vehicles and related systems.
The duration of the project is 30 years post construction, with the construction phase scheduled for 6 years.
